Luckily, writing is a craft and art that can be learned by doing it. But many writers lack an on-going focused environment in which to take their work to the next level. Led by writer/performer/educator thom vernon, the Writers’ Circle TO is a unique and safe workshop environment designed to be accessible to creative writers: screenwriters, play writers, fiction writers, essayists and others (1-person shows, memoirists, etc.). Participation is by invitation only.
Check out what people have said about thom’s classes and the drop-down menu above to get a taste of some of the topics we work on in the Circle. In the winter we’ll be taking on Backstory, Subtext, Double-entendre, ethnicities, geographies and maybe even a little quantum physics.
During each three-hour session, a presentation will be made on one of the key elements of the craft of writing. These include Story, Plot, Logic, Character, Setting, Rhythm, Dialogue and Revision amongst others. These elements will be modeled and then practiced in our sessions.
Our goal is to unleash the author in each writer. Good writers‘author’, according to Barthes, while others transcribe, or write. Authoring implies an authenticity, an amplification of meaning, that is not found in transcription. Readers of creative writing want unique experiences which only come when their emotions engage with our authoring. These sessions will teach you the tools and techniques to achieve ‘authoring’. They will leave writers refreshed, inspired and eager to enter their work.
thom will offer feedback in several ways: 1-1 sessions, .pdf-embedded, screencasts. While no participant is required to submit work for feedback, the Writers’ Circle TO is a rare opportunity to engage with a professional writer and a select community of peers.
Location: Downtown Toronto, TBD
